This page will help you determine if Poll Everywhere's SMS polls will work in your country. We provide a list of countries we believe will work with our various international phone numbers, and a way to test for yourself.
Look up your country and carrier in this full coverage list (PDF) or this full coverage list (HTML) and see which international phone numbers might work for your mobile carrier. In general, to the best of our knowledge, here is a list of countries by continent that we believe we fully cover:
Below are two polls setup to help you test whether Poll Everywhere can receive your messages. They also test our ability to send you a text back.
Text each poll below. Standard rate international SMS fees may apply. In our experience, USD $0.50 is typical and USD $1 is worst-case for an international text.
Example: Text london Texting this from Russia to +44 76 2480 6527
If your message appears above, then inbound SMS to Poll Everywhere (voting) works. If you receive a reply message of "Hello from London", then confirmations work.
Example: Text sydney Hello from New Zealand to +61 429 883 481
If your message shows up above, then inbound SMS to Poll Everywhere (voting) works. If you receive a reply message of "Hello from Sydney", then confirmations work.
Can you already Tweet from your phone in your country? Twitter has text local SMS text messaging in New Zealand, the UK, India, Germany, Sweden, and others. See their list of local numbers here.
Tweeting a message that includes "@poll" is just like sending an SMS text message to any of our phone numbers.
